Reciprocal Rights Banner

Members of our clubs have reciprocal visiting privileges with most other member clubs. Your members can also visit many clubs in Australia that belong to their local state club association.

Guidelines for individuals visiting other clubs

  • You must provide proof of membership of your own club.  Each club will have its own individual entry requirements according to the clubs rules, even if you are a member of another club you may be required to sign in.
  • Under the law clubs can only sell and supply alcohol to members of the club concerned, guests of a member of the club concerned and reciprocal visitors (members of another Clubs New Zealand member club).  Unless a club has been granted a condition on their licence, a person who is not a member of any club, who has been invited to the club by a reciprocal visitor will not be able to be sold or supplied alcohol while in the club.
  • Your club must be a financial member of clubs New Zealand
  • Check with the club beforehand about dress code, special rules or ticket-only events.
  • If you pay frequent visits to another club, you may be required to join it
  • Those RSAs that are not members of Clubs New Zealand may not extend reciprocal visiting rights.
  • Failure to observe the rules and by-laws of the club you are visiting may result in non-admission or removal from the premises.  In extreme cases, the withdrawal of visiting rights for either you or your entire club may result.
  • Be aware that individual clubs have the right to control entry to their club, and despite reciprocal rights being in place, you may be denied entry to the club.
  • Legal entry requirements in Australia may be different to New Zealand so check before visiting an overseas club.
